Macrobiotic retreats to soothe and nourish
For over twenty years from its current base in Littlehempston, the International Macrobiotic School has welcomed hundreds of students from all over the world, empowering them to create and maintain health and happiness.
It teaches the enriching alchemy of macrobiotic cooking as a central way of creating physical health, along with emotional and mental balance.
This year offers a wonderful new chapter for the school as it's founder and Principal Oliver Cowmeadow has acquired a beautiful new site with the intention of creating a haven for well-being, rest and relaxation.
The schools new address, Murtwell House, is nestled in deep Devon countryside, five miles south of Totnes, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The majestic beaches of the South Hams and the quintessential Devon towns of Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are a short drive away.
As you leave the hustle and bustle behind, bird song replaces traffic noise and you begin to get a sense of what lies ahead.
Upon arrival you will immediately be drawn to the peace and tranquility, the main house is surrounded by secluded gardens, together with organic alotments and a natural spring that supplies the house with water.
In addition to the main 2018 Macrobiotic school course itinerary we are now able to offer a number of personal or small group retreats for people wishing to relax, unwind and experience the amazing benefits of a healthy macrobiotic diet.
Your break will commence on a Thursday evening and finish on Sunday afternoon (although subject to availability you are welcome to extend your stay if you wish.)
The price shown includes a macrobiotic breakfast, lunch and evening meal.
There are three bedrooms available on each retreat, with the following sleeping options.
Option 1 - Double bedroom, en suite bathroom - £295 per person*
Option 2 - twin bedroom, shared bathroom - £275 per person*
